The safety of our customers is our number one priority. While propane gas is a safe and reliable fuel source, knowing how to detect and handle a gas leak is essential for the security and safety of your home and family. Please read the following steps so you know what to do if you ever suspect a gas leak in your home.
If You Smell Gas in Your Cape Cod Home…
- EXTINGUISH FLAMES AND SPARKS. Immediately put out all smoking materials and open flames. Do not operate lights, appliances, telephones, or cell phones. Flames or sparks from these sources can trigger an explosion or a fire.
- SHUT OFF THE GAS SUPPLY. Turn off the main gas supply valve on your propane tank if it is safe to do so. To close the valve, turn it clockwise.
- LEAVE THE AREA IMMEDIATELY. Get everyone out of the building or area where you suspect gas is leaking. Do not return until your propane retailer, emergency responder, or qualified service technician determines that it is safe to do so.
- REPORT THE LEAK. From a neighbor’s home or other nearby building away from the gas leak, call your propane retailer immediately. If you can’t reach your propane retailer, call 911 or your local fire department.
- GET YOUR SYSTEM INSPECTED. Before you attempt to use any of your propane appliances, your propane retailer or a qualified service technician must check your entire system to ensure that it is leak-free and safe to use.
